HC Deb 24 March 1927 vol 204 cc588-9W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he will furnish a return showing the number of and duties of officials whose salaries are borne on the Board of Education Vote who are in receipt of pension for service in His Majesty's forces or the police exceeding£250 per annum, giving the total salary, including bonus, and the amount of pension in each case?


There are two such officers in my Department. One is the officer referred to in the reply which I gave the hon. Member yesterday. The other is first class supervisor of warders at the Bethnal Green Museum and is in receipt of a weekly salary of £3 18s. 1d. (including bonus) and a Navy pension of £253 10s. a year. The titles of the posts will sufficiently indicate the nature of the duties performed by these officers.


asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will furnish a return showing the number of persons in each Department of the Civil Service and His Majesty's forces who are in receipt of a pension of £400 or more per annum in addition to their salary?


The information asked for is not immediately available and could only be obtained by an amount of labour and expense which I do not think it would be justifiable to incur for the purpose.
